(Well he has caught me because I'm recovering from a cold after a school visit. I should keep away from such places).
ACHOO WILL CATCH YOU - Josie Whitehead
Everyone’s met Achoo, known as the common cold.
He’s an evil little cold germ who’ll not do as he’s told.
He likes to pounce on people for he’s such a social man.
He hides away in corners and he’ll catch you if he can.
He’s invisible to humans so you won’t know that he’s there.
He’ll be hiding in your classroom or sitting on your chair.
He’ll be waiting on the door handle or flying through the air.
He’ll be hiding where you least expect, so is this really fair?
You’ll know when Achoo’s caught you for you start to feel quite ill
And Mum might say “Stay in the warm - you’ve got a nasty chill.”
Your throat feels sore, your nose will run and oh how tired you feel.
The fact that Achoo’s caught you isn’t easy to conceal.
Keep sneezes in your bedroom. Don’t let Achoo get away.
He soon will tire of his silly tricks and he’ll go another day.
By keeping him at home you will not give him to your friends
And Achoo’s nasty, sneaky tricks will soon come to an end.
Hope your children like this.
